Social Share


Facing the Truth: Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women will bring us together with an incredible panel of Native women leaders to honor Indigenous lives lost to violence and commit to action. During this session, we will learn the truths surrounding our history and the movement for addressing the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, boys, two spirit and transgender people. The history of the United States has depended on a norm of violence for Native people. Together we will unfold the attitudes of dominant culture, oppressive systemic policies and the theft of land that has created heightened vulnerability for Indigenous people, and take action for justice. 

Presenters:
Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan
Nicole Matthews, Minnesota Indian Women's Sexual Assault Coalition
Senator Mary Kunesh
Angela Two Stars, All My Relations Arts

It’s Time to Act! is a forum series that engages participants for deeper learning and action planning around issues of race, equity, identity and social justice.

The forums are a catalyst for changemaking, where attendees take a deep dive into issues affecting our community and are inspired to identify their own role and power to create change.
